Canada won’t see any Rivians until at least next summer. USA late spring.

According to a recent research study by Morgan Stanley, Ford Motor Company is on pace to outsell General Motors (GM) in the EV market for 2021. The research compares Ford’s EV sales through the first 10 months of this year against GM’s, while noting the latter’s halt to Bolt production.

Tesla has indicated that it plans to invest almost $200 million to expand Gigafactory Shanghai and hire 4,000 more people.

 

Gigafactory Shanghai has been an incredible success story for Tesla.

 

The automaker achieved an annualized production capacity of 500,000 electric vehicles at Gigafactory Shanghai within two years of starting production at the new factory.

Is Tesla Giga Shanghai On Track For 1 Million EVs/Year Output In 2022?

 

The two-month average is already exceeding 660,000 cars per year.

Won't see any Cybertrucks before then either.

I put a deposit on a Rivian R1S. Hopefully it all comes together some time around end 2022, early 2023.

What made you choose Rivian over CYbErTRuCk?

Oh snap!! I stopped watching when he showed the cubby hole, and I said no truck of mine will have a cubby hole! Funnily enough you know what that’s good for? Rifles!

The R1S doesn't have the cubby, only the R1T. The Rivian is what Tesla should have built. It also exists, whereas the Cybertruck is a vapourware afterthought of a high-as-**** spaceman more focused on building rockets than anything else at this point.

Except he builds and sells more electric cars than any other company in the west.

Yes, and now there is a whistle shaped like the CYbErTRuCk, probably made from the same cyber material.

...and he could build more, and better, if he wasn't a high-as-**** spaceman more focused on building rockets than anything else at this point.

He builds more than anyone else, and with a profit margin higher than any other similar-priced vehicle.  And spends more on R&D than anyone else to make things better/cheaper too.

 

What else do you want?

An electric truck that exists. Preferably an electric truck that doesn't look like it was designed by high-as-**** spaceman more focused on building rockets than anything else at this point.

The R1 SUV and Truck are the only on trend EV's right now.  I dont want a ball/teardrop, and I need a back area for animals.

Ok, now the cubby hole makes sense. Rifles are stored there, your hunted kills transported in the bed.

It’s about as bonkers of a vehicle as the CYbErTRuCk.
